Project Discovery

An arts education initiative.

For over ten years, Performing Arts Napa Valley has provided over 50,000 free and low cost tickets to elementary, middle, high school and college students throughout Napa Valley.

Modeled after the award winning Dallas Theater Center arts education program, Project Discovery provides tickets, study guides and post show workshops to Performing Arts Napa Valley performances at little or no cost. The desired result is for every young person in our diverse community to have a meaningful experience with the performing arts.


– Offer substantially discounted student matinĂ©es to all Napa Valley schools

– Provide free tickets to all Napa Valley College Performing Arts students

– Perform Shakespeare in the Park free of charge in Napa

Please consider joining our commitment to cultivating the artists and audiences of tomorrow through a donation to Performing Arts Napa Valley. Your gift will help support our Project Discovery Initiative, ensuring that every member of our community has access to the power of performing arts.

The Enthusiasts

The Enthusiasts program at Performing Arts Napa Valley welcomes individuals to attend all rehearsals, including technical and dress rehearsals, with opportunities to chat with the director, designers and actors. Program participants will read the script and attend rehearsals, as well as write about the experience through a medium of choice, such as a blog, social media or other written work.
